Anonymous asked: Option C: Accept male privilege and be aware that you have it, don't be a dick about it, use it to educate others / be a better person. Privilege is not bad per se, what's bad is using it to opress others. Actually, it's the moral duty of those with privilege to use it to help the less privileged out. See your privilege not as a load, but as a responsability and as a chance to make the world a better place. Most people who have it don't realize it. You do. Use that for the greater good! :)
So - with great power comes great responsibility, I guess.
Although there are people who argue that even just having privilege by definition is inherently oppressive, due to its nature.
I don’t know what level of helping is morally obligatory, either; and for instance if it would be okay if I don’t actually go be an activist, because sometimes I’m so tired and I just want to curl up somewhere and forget the world.
